This is by far the most dramatic wildlife photograph ever taken by Mark. Granted, its not a photo full of action, its very static but the story this photo conveys is for me the reason its so dramatic.
Blood covered Lioness protecting her cub, with a tooth missing says so much. It really is a Portrait of Power. This is an old image taken back in 2008 in the Kruger National Park, and to this day remains one of my best moments as a wildlife photographer.
Mark shared this image last year, but he wanted to reshare it for those who may not have seen it on his Instagram account
